Srinagar, Mar 5: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Mohammad Yaseen Malik was on Monday arrested during a protest march in the summer capital and shifted to central Jail, Srinagar.
Defying restrictions, scores of JKLF leaders and activists led by Malik took to streets at Maisuma and tried to take out a protest march towards Lal Chowk, against killing of four people besides two Lashkher-e-Toiba (LeT) militants late last night in south Kashmir district of Shopian.
However, security forces and state police personnel swung into action and stopped the protestors near Badshah Bridge. After brief resistance, police took into custody Malik and about a dozen leaders and activists of the front.
Malik was later shifted to central jail, Srinagar.
